Watch Toyah Willcox and Robert Fripp’s Sunday Lunch return with Joan Jett’s ‘Bad Reputation’

Toyah Willcox and Robert Fripp‘s Sunday Lunch cover series is back after a month-long break – check out their cover of Joan Jett‘s ‘Bad Reputation’ below.

In their characteristically comedic video, Willcox is shown sticking heart-shaped Post-It notes with the word ‘Bad’ on them to Fripp’s forehead as he plays guitar. Behind them, a poster reading ‘FRIPP BAD TOYAH GOOD’ can be seen.

Jett’s 1981 hit remains one of her signature songs and is taken from her debut self-titled album It was one of the first songs the artist released after the disbandment of The Runaways.


Their last Sunday Lunch cover arrived at the end of March in the form of a rendition of The J. Geils Band’s ‘Centerfold’.
